Pick your own oranges this weekend.

Pick your own oranges in the city of La Verne opens this weekend. This is a small orchard that has been around for many years. This orchard is only open to the public a few days a season to pick fresh oranges. We go every year and bring home several bags of their famous fruit. The kids love to get outside and pick their own sweet treat. Bring cash as they do not accept credit or debit cards. We suggest to bring at least $40.00 dollars because they also sell other delicious products. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes for this adventure.  Don't wait, this orchard sells out fast. The address is 5001 Vía De Mansion, La Verne, CA 91750 Learn more about this wonderful place.  2018 Family Field Trip

Award-winning olives are grown here in Southern California.

Southern California is a beautiful state filled with many farms and orchards. This past November, we had the opportunity to tour  Macala Orchards  during Pomegranate season. Macala Orchards is located in Hemet, California, approximately 75 miles from South Orange County. It is one of two farms known for Olive Oil and is the only Pomegranate farm we could find near Orange County that would allow tours. The twenty-acre orchard is filled with 500 Olive Trees, 172 Pomegranate Trees, 35 Guava Trees, 9 Fig Trees and an herb garden. It is a peaceful place, far away from the city lights and heavy traffic. Perfect for growing award-winning olives!  Interested in camping in the orchards?  Macala Orchards is host to several tent camping spots with beautiful views and amazing star lit nights. How we arranged a tour: Months before the pomegranate season began, we reached out to the orchard. Nina Morton, Vice President of Macala Orchards, replied to us with their tour availability.  To sched
